Here's what I see:

cat /tmp/patch | ./scripts/
Kees Cook <> (supporter:PSTORE FILESYSTEM)
Tony Luck <> (reviewer:PSTORE FILESYSTEM)
"Guilherme G. Piccoli" <> (reviewer:PSTORE FILESYSTEM)
"Rafael J. Wysocki" <> (unknown:ACPI APEI)
Len Brown <> (reviewer:ACPI APEI)
James Morse <> (reviewer:ACPI APEI)
Borislav Petkov <> (reviewer:ACPI APEI)

so I'm guessing Kees, Tony, Guilherme ...

>From what I can see, the change itself is making me ask more questions:

When I see "may" in commit messages "Slow devices such as flash may not
meet the default 1ms timeout value" then I wanna know what devices are

What is the actual use case here?

Upthread there's a question about the ACPI spec. That should be
explained too. Because I have no clue what "the ERST max execution time
value" is.

And so on.
